Rather Have the Story podcast - ROGER MANNING: Pt1 (Beck, Jellyfish, Moog Cookbook, etc!)

video upload by Rather Have the Story - The RHS podcast

"The one, the only (almost, we discuss this) ROGER MANNING.

Incredibly talented and positive soul, RJMJ joins us for a great chat about music stuff. Great stories of digging for the then-unwanted "old keyboards" and what one does with them...

Join us for Part 1 (of likely 647 more episodes where RJMJ will return).

You will hear about vocal harmonies, classic arranging, French music, Beck, Jellyfish, and not much else - because we have a lot more to come when he returns later (like Lickerish Quartet, Imperial Drag, The Moog Cookbook, Load, Malibu, TV Eyes, Roger Joseph Manning Jr, Morrissey, Blink 192... and on and on.)

The Was Not Was song we discuss was finally released nearly 15 years later, on their Boo! album. That track is "From the Head to the Heart" - hear it here in finished form. String quartet, Orchestron Cello, Mellotron flutes!"

Vector Synth Autumn Update

"Over six months have passed since our last update. There is a lot of encouragement and positivity, some amazing feedback and a lot of ideas flying around on where to go next, what things to improve, what new features to add.

We really appreciate the trust Vector operators put into us, a small boutique synthesizer maker. In return, we try to make this little but powerful machine the best it can be.

There’s a lot to share, so let’s get right to it.
Firmware Update 2.6.6

The 2.6.X series firmware has been in beta for a few months and the community has been incredibly helpful with presenting ideas, testing and reporting bugs. After so many iterations — six of them — the 2.6.6 firmware is ready for production use and is shipped with all new Vectors. So what’s new?

New Ladder Filter

In addition to the second-order 12dB/oct filters which can be switched between low pass, band pass and high pass modes, the new firmware introduces a 24dB/oct low pass ladder filter. The new filter provides a classic and well-known tonal character, which in combination with Vector’s synthesis engine gives it new opportunities for creative filtering.

New Blend Modes

The 2.6.6 introduces new Blend modes for even more ways the harmonic Generators can interact. PDAM and rPDAM stand for Phase Distortion and Amplitude Modulation, and Reverse Phase Distortion and Amplitude Modulation. The two new Blend modes complement the existing PD, AM, and PDAM Blend modes. Just like the other modulation types, these are also audio-rate and the operators and modulators can be separately filtered before modulation.

Dune Soundtrack The One Hans Zimmer Cover all analog synthesizers, Moog, ARP-2600, Soma Lyra-8, DFAM

video upload by EthanJamesMusic

"This is a synthwave cover of the soundtrack for The One by Hans Zimmer from the movie Dune. I wanted to see if it was possible to get somewhat close to the spirit of the music using only analog electronic synthesizers with guitar. I am using some Eurorack modular with a Buchla Easel Command and Soma Labs Lyra-8 to create the drone, while the Moog Grandmother is covering the low brass parts, and the ARP-2600 is covering the string (cello and bass) parts. I'm using the Moog DFAM to cover the low drum hits. Finally, I'm using the Sequential Circuits OB-6 to do the end high strings.

I hope you enjoy! This was a fun exercise in sound design and trying to get the spirit of the orchestra into an analog synth orchestra idea."

Patch Notes:

Eurorack modular:
Instruo CS-L: using final outputs of both oscillators to a Make Noise Optomix to filter some of the high frequencies. The symmetry of both oscillators is being randomized by fluctuating voltage from a Frap Tools Sapèl.
Random Source Serge New Timbral Oscillator saw output to Serge Variable Frequency VCF. Low pass output to mixer. Filter frequency is being modulated by a Zlob modular Diode Chaos, while Q gain is being modulated by a Make Noise Wogglebug stepped output.
Make Noise Morphagene has a guitar loop playing D, and I'm using the knobs to make things change. Audio to an After Later Audio Monsoon (Clouds clone).
Make Noise Erbeverb in feedback mode to mixer.
All Eurorack audio to an Eventide H9 pedal doing reverb.

Soma Labs Lya-8 is in full drone mode with Hold turned all the way up. Most oscillators tuned close to a D with some variation. Audio is going to a Make Noise X-Pan modulated by an Intellijel Quadrax.

Buchla 208c Easel Command is providing more pulse-like ambience with random voltage changing the timbre very quickly. Audio to Make Noise X-Pan.

Moog Grandmother normalled patch with very slow attack and decay that is also assigned to the filter.

Moog DFAM using a very long decay with the two oscillators tuned a half step apart. Oscillator 2 has very low volume, so it's mostly contributing the attack sound.

ARP-2600 normalled patch with moderate ADSR modulation of the filter.

Sequential Circuits OB-6 using a polysaw sound being controlled by the Novation Bassstation II."

"Ripartono i video del Soundmit!
Tra vacanze, Superbooth e sopratutto l'organizzazione del nuovo Soundmit 2021, siamo stati un pò impegnati ma ricominciamo alla grande con il video dedicato alla VERMONA DRM1 MKIV che Thomas Haller ci ha inviato qualche mese fa!

Ci siamo innamorati del 'nuovo' suono dato da alcuni miglioramenti alla circuitazione, delle nuove funzioni e della solidità con cui è costruita!"

Sequential Circuits Prophet-5 REV 3.0 SN 1329

"You’ll find searching for a Vintage Prophet 5 that sellers say that it “works fine” or has had a minor repair to make it seem “fine”. We had Bell Tone Synth Works go completely thru this one and fix what was broken and replace the common things that fail to insure a solid & warrantied synth.

Low serial number puts made in the late ‘70s (1978-1983 for all rev 3.x models)"

Roland GR-700 JX3P, PG200, & G707 Analog Synthesizer System

via this auction

"Complete, original vintage Roland JX/ GR synthesizer suite, including the Roland JX-3p synthesizer, PG-200 programmer, GR-700 synthesizer, and G-707 controller, complete with original case, memory cartridge, and all cabling!!!!

The PG-200 will program both the JX-3p, and GR-700, and when a midi input is added, the GR-700 can act as an expander module with extra memory for the JX-3p. Lots of synth!!!

The g707 controller is also an excellent guitar in its own right, and plays a peach. The humbuckers are actually pretty damn good all on their own, and of course, slinging a black g707 on stage is a pretty hard flex. ;)

A rare opportunity to get the full meal deal. All components are serviced and fully functional, and sounding awesome."

Korg X-911 Analog Guitar Synthesizer

via this auction

“Unlike other 'synth' pedals, the X-911 gave players real synth controls to play with; things like portamento, voltage-controlled filters and real ADSR generation were built right in. And unlike many other synth boxes, these actually worked, and worked well.

The heart of the X-911 lies within its mixer; a crossfader between the “instrument” section and the “synthe” section. The former bank of knobs and switches transforms your guitar into six polyphonic voices: Electric Bass, Tuba, Trumpet, Distortion Guitar (!), Violin and Flute. Each of these voices gives you a tone knob, while the Violin setting offers up an attack control. Those of us that caught wise to synths early on knew there was no chance on Earth that your guitar was going to magically turn into a Mellotron and spit out a pristine violin or flute sample, but the X-911 got decently close. However, it was a lot easier to digest the idea of your guitar pumping out floor-thumping bass rather than emulating a tuba, so most of us gave it a pass and saw it for what it was.

The Synthe section is where the X-911 earns its money, serving up several stackable waveforms along with the ability to sculpt your own custom ADSR envelope for a complete synth experience. Frankly, it’s what synth pedals should have been from the get-go. Other offerings include extra synth touches like analog octaving, touch sensitivity and a slick portamento knob to easily and seamlessly glide between notes without so much as a hiccup. The front panel let you control the various parameters with a variety of foot-controllable extras, letting you use the X-911 as a brain for your entire setup. This thing was serious.

Strangely, it’s one of the most unsung Korg units, even though it should be celebrated far outside of its brand, category and segment of history. Frankly, the X-911, despite its at-times questionable tracking (just put a compressor in front) is the yardstick to which all other guitar synth units should be measured.”

ensoniq ESQ 1 - one of the best hybrids ever

video upload by synthlegends

"Demo of ESQ 1 with wether GFI soecular reverb or GFI clockwork delay. No additional processing but those two pedals (first the reverb, than delay and in the and the reverb).

I used the sounds form the PA-Decoder RAM cartridge and another multi cartridge from different sound banks found in the web. Everything is played live without overdubbing.

There are some nice pianos, later on strings, pads, bass sounds, PPG like glassy sounds, bells and leads in this video.

The ESQ-1 is a very capable hybrid synth with 32 digital waveforms, three oscillators and analog filter. There is also a very rudimentary sequencer. The ESQ-1 is very capable thanks of ring modulator, orc-sync, three LFO and four (!) envelopes. I only lacks effects, but with outboard it sounds stunning. It is possible to make great pianos, quite realistic for that tim in 1987, glassy PPG-like tones, bells, fat sync leads, brass sounds and warm pads.

It really shines and has some resemblance to the SCI Prophet VS I also own and which is my all time favorite hybrid synth.

I just got a wave expansion board with 32 additional waves from PA-Decoder, a german manufacturer, which I will install soon and maybe do another video.

Thanks for watching and see you next time. Cheers!"
